First Choice Carpentry

All work completed as agreed, or BETTER! "Your Best Choice for All Your Remodeling Needs"

We give professional consultation, providing cost-effective and time-efficient plans for current and potential customers. For ex: Sometimes the customer is unsure of exactly what modifications or improvements are needed, and what can actually be accomplished in their given situation. Very often, they will forgo desired ideas because they think it cannot work in their given area. Other times they think their idea will not fit their budget. I always attempt to learn the customer's needs and desires for every project, before any ideas are discounted. Most of the time, I've been able to find a way to accomplish their desired plans within the given budget. I exhaust resources as necessary searching for solutions and sometimes alternative ways to meet the needs and desires of each project. I strictly adhere to the golden rule in conducting my personal and business affairs, and believe in doing what is right, not just what is good enough.

As good as or better than promised. A catchy phrase that heads all the detailed legal contracts that Bob Weisman writes. But as you get to know the man....It is more than a phrase....It is a promise. If I had to summarize 3 adjectives to describe Bob work I would start with the word PRIDE. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Foremost, Bob wants his customer to be happy. He writes up every detail of what needs to be done on a certain job and wants input from the customer that their expectations are totally met. There are no short cuts or need to be in a hurry. He wants it done correct the FIRST time! Bob is a true craftsman who takes great pride in his work. He is a perfectionist. We often see so little perfectionism in today society. It is his central core. When he is done with a projects you know it has been done right! Even if there is a minor detail that may bother a customer in the end he will correct it immediately to make sure that all his customers are 100% satisfied. He will NOT settle for 99 percent satisfied. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- EXPERIENCED. Bob has decades of doing home repairs and is up-to-date on all the latest trends. He is well-connected to multiple suppliers who I have seen first hand are quite friendly towards him and he is able to obtain materials that are needed quickly. If something specific is needed (especially in older homes like mine) that needs to be updated he will bring it to the customers attention. After he remodeled my kitchen and made several improvements that were needed, I have come to realize how much his work has increased the value of my home. I was looking for repairs and improvements and in the end I got all that plus an investment that improved my resell value. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Lastly TRUST. As with any new partnership, you place your trust in that person that he means what he says and says what he means. In the beginning, like any good homeowner, I watched over everything that he and his men did. It did not take long to convince this old retired military Officer that this is a good man. His word is his bond and his work is a reflection of that word. The single biggest compliment I can give Bob Weisman is that without hesitation I will hire him back for any future projects without any reservation. My next door neighbor is so impressed with my kitchen remodel/improvements this year that they too want to hire him for a porch project they have. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ As good as or better than promised Not just words on paper but a commitment to his customers! Thank you.

Project: Install Drywall
First choice carpentry is an excellent business. I appreciate knowing I can relax and the job will be done thoroughly and promptly just as it was agreed upon in the contract. Bob Weisman and his assistant cared deeply about the quality of their work and makes sure every detail is just right and top notch!!!

Bob did a wonderful, quality job on my kitchen. He refaced all of my cabinets (built custom cabinetry for my microwave/garbage), installed under cabinet lighting, brick backsplash (that extended out to a full brick wall which he also did), replaced dated lighting with recessed lighting, installed new appliances and oversaw the installation of new countertops. The job took longer than I anticipated (approximately 5 mos.), but I would rather have quality than a rushed job that was not what I wanted. I found Bob to be communicative, trustworthy and easy to work with.

Project: Build a Garage
About 5 1/2 years ago, due to extreme heat and dry weather, we had problems in opening, closing and locking our backdoor. We contacted Bob Weisman and once he looked at the door, he was able to provide us with a quick fix of the frame, which corrected the problem and spared us costly repair charges and door replacement. It was refreshing to find someone as honest as Bob. Since then, he built a crawlspace door which turned out great and now, I am looking forward to discussing another project with him. I highly recommend Bob!!!! Robert K

Review by in Knoxville, TN
We found First Choice Carpentry on Home Advisor and we are so pleased that we did. The owner, Bob, and his assistant Bob, were great in every way. Our master bathroom remodel required demolition (including walls), electrical, plumbing, installing a new shower and vanity as well as light fixture, and cabinets, and flooring. Due to extensive water damage, we turned out to need our other bathroom repaired as well. The only outsourced job was the electrical. Between the two Bobs, they can do most anything. They were very conscientious, precise and always upfront about everything. We are very happy with their excellent quality work!

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
